Special Issue Call for Papers: Advances in Microbial Pathogenesis

The editors of Microbial Pathogenesis (YMPAT), Current Research in Microbial Sciences (CRMICR) and Current Research in Immunology (CRIMMU) are joining to organize a special collection called Advances in Microbial Pathogenesis and Host Immunity.

How to efficiently combat infectious agents, including bacteria, fungi, viruses and protozoa is now more important than ever. In addition, research on host-pathogen interactions and immunity to infection can have a significant impact in clinics and is progressing at a spectacular rate.

With this joint special issue, the editors aim at gathering contributions that address current progress in microbial pathogenesis, host-pathogen interactions and immune responses against infections either aiming at advancing the field or at predicting future therapies or treatments.

We would like to invite you to submit original research and review articles that provide insights into novel contributions on recent developments in the field including:

  • Pathogenesis

  • Virulence factors

  • Host susceptibility or resistance

  • Innate and adaptive immune responses

  • Identification, cloning and sequencing of relevant genes

  • Genetic studies

  • Viruses, bacteria, fungi, and protozoa

  • Microbiota in health and disease

  • Systems biology related to infectious diseases

  • Research on vaccine design (pre-clinical studies)


  • Submission dates: 1st May 2021 – 31st December 2021

  • Publication schedule: All accepted articles will be published without delay in the journal you submitted to and they will be grouped in an online collection which will contain articles from all three journals, linked electronically, thus increasing the discoverability of your work.

  • Contact us and pre-submission enquiries: For questions about submitting your paper or if you would like to send a pre-submission query please contact Bilge San, Scientific Editor (
